The majority of cyclists attach their action cameras to their cycle helmets to record their cycle rides, and thinking about it this seems to be the obvious location. I totally get why cyclists mount their action cameras to their bike helmets, what I don’t get is why they attach the action camera to the top of their helmet.
Action and video cameras attached to the top of cycle helmets not only create drag and catch the wind, but they look ridiculous too. Having an action camera mounted to the top of your helmet makes you look like a Teletubby, and no one wants to have the words “Eh oh” yelled at them by passing car drivers. And yes, I have witnessed on more than one occasion and whilst it made me smile and chuckle to myself the poor cyclists subject of the abuse didn’t seem to find it too funny at all.
Rather than mounting an action camera to the top of your cycle helmet there is a much better place, and this is where I attach my Go Pro Session camera to my cycle helmet. Attaching your action to this part of your cycle helmet results in more than one point of view and allows you to capture more interesting, diverse and dynamic video footage.
“Where is this place on my cycle helmet?” I hear you cry. Well check out the following clip, and all will be revealed.
